Music’s biggest night was last night as The 59th Annual Grammy Awards took place at LA’s Staples Center. From Cee-Lo’s peculiar “outfit” to Beyonce’s stunning performance, The star-studded event is the most talked about event during award season, and probably will be for months to come!

Late night talk show host, James Corden, took over hosting duties. While he did an okay job, I can’t help but wonder if LL Cool J turned down the offer or simply wasn’t asked. LL was a Grammy host for the past 5 years.

Of course, the red carpet is where it’s at when the stars arrive at a huge event like The Grammys. We always look forward to the fashions, so we can have something to talk about besides the performances. One artist that has EVERYONE talkin’ is Gnarly “Cee-Lo Green” Davidson!

My dude said if he doesn’t win a Grammy, he’ll at least look like one!

 

Thank God everyone else kept the dress code traditional, and they looked great!

 

Although Beyoncé led the pack with the most nominations this year, it was Adele who was the big winner with a Grammy for Album of the Year for ’25’,  Record of the Year for “Hello”, and Song of the Year for “Hello”. However, it was her acceptance speech about Beyoncé that had us all in the feels.

Beyonce’s acceptance speech after picking up a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album for ‘Lemonade’ was powerful, as well as thought-provoking.

 

Solange also won a Grammy for Best R&B Performance, “Cranes in the Sky”.

Solange’s big sister WOWED fans with a breath-taking performance of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” from ‘Lemonade.’

Watch Bruno Mars and legendary band, The Time, pay tribute to the Late Great Prince. I must say, I totally underestimated Bruno. He totally slayed “Let’s Go Crazy”. Prince definitely would have been proud!


Bruno did a fantastic and energetic performance of his own hit single, “That’s What I Like” from his album, ’24K Magic’.

How ’bout that kick-ass performance of “We The People” by A Tribe Called Quest?
